NCGA CEO Jon Doggett will join members of the U.S. House of Representatives Biofuels Caucus and other biofuels leaders for a virtual Congressional Biofuels Caucus Town Hall this Wednesday evening. The open discussion will focus on the challenges, opportunities, and next steps for the ethanol industry.
Corn growers can join the town hall live, Wednesday, June 17, at 5:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. CT on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZiI1Rju7L0&feature=youtu.be .
Corn’s two largest markets, ethanol and animal agriculture, were severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and corn farmers are facing an $89 per acre loss for the 2020 corn crop. NCGA is focused on getting these important markets functioning again and supporting growers throughout this difficult time. The town hall discussion will be an opportunity to learn more about these efforts across the biofuels sector.
